DescriptionStart off a boulder directly below the right of two parallel cracks that split the top of the rock, and about 15' left of an ugly wide crack.
Pull onto the rock via an incut bucket with smears for the feet and then climb a steep, unprotected slab on good rock into the right crack which is hand size. Belay/rap from coldshuts between the two cracks.
Given 5.2 in guidebooks the moves seemed a bit harder than that on the neighboring Tarantula (5.2), but a little easier than Arachnids (5.5). Traversing in from the left bypasses the thinnest moves and makes the 5.2 grade more believable.
A good climb, but the lack of pro will make this a toprope for those who will actually appreciate this climb. Good rock, fun moves and an easy approach make this one star out of five.
